(3 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
A big country house with a little price tag
The Russ Hill began life as a country manor and still retains a charming, rustic feel. Although this large, friendly lodge is just 10 minutes' drive from Gatwick's terminals, it enjoys picturesque rural views of nearby Surrey something of a rarity at an airport hotel.
Cosy, comfortable and close to south terminal
The Russ Hill offers well-soundproofed and comfortable rooms, a cosy bar and an informal dining room which serves breakfast and buffet-style dinners. The Russ Hill's theme is traditional British from the wood-panelled walls and high-backed armchairs to the roasted dinners and local pub feel of the bar; it's a refreshing contrast to the familiar chain hotels that dominate the area. All rooms are en-suite and have a television, and free wifi is available in the hotel's public areas. A bus runs hourly to the airport terminals (see Getting There for further details); or it's a quick taxi ride.
Staying at Russ Hill has always been a perfect transition for parking and staying before flying. This occasion we were fortunate to have the 3 course dinner the night before which exceeding my expectations. We always use Russ Hill for flights from Gatwick as check in has always been friendly and simple, parking is easy and the taxi to and from the airport has always been excellent, on time and never leave you waiting long on your return. This is an excellent service and would recommend.Mrs Stone (Gatwick Russ Hill)
The Russ is basic accommodation but clean and friendly, used it many times and never had any problemsMrs Strudwick (Gatwick Russ Hill)
The parking was great but the hotel bedroom was awful:-( damp peeling walls, very uncomfortable bed, out dated and run down hotel very dirty inside in place.Mrs Geldard (Gatwick Russ Hill)
Double rooms are too small and no tea coffee making facilities in the rooms and the taxi firm you recommend was very rude coming back to the hotel.Ms Barber (Gatwick Russ Hill)
Parking facilities were excellent, hotel room was very basic not the standard I was expecting but considering the price we paid which included the parking it was cheap so perfectly fine.Miss Dawe (Gatwick Russ Hill)
